Medical Education

DJO Global Institute, the Medical Education arm of DJO Global, offers many robust educational events to meet the needs of a broad array of Health Care Professionals (HCP). Through education, we hope to improve patient care, and help get them back to a healthy active lifestyle.  We are committed to advancing professional education in areas that will positively affect experiences faced in daily clinical practices and help improve the quality of patients' lives.

Our broad line of products covers the entire patient experience from prevention to treatment and rehabilitation. Through education we have the power to positively affect a patient’s life. Programs developed are geared towards educating HCPs on how they can better serve their patients related to pain management, injury prevention & treatment and rehabilitation.
